Stephen has a vast knowledge of Tax Planning practices and tools. Appearing regularly on BBC radio and on national television, Stephen has decades of experience as a Financial Adviser. He is one of the first consultants to become a Fellow of the Personal Finance Society and he also holds the status of Chartered Financial Planner, Certified Financial Planner and European Financial Planner. Moreover, he was joint first to receive the ISO22222 standard for financial planners and led Clear Solutions to become the first advisory firm to be awarded the BS8577 Professional Practice Award from the Chartered Insurance Institute. When the Chartered Insurance Institute relinquished their UK licence to maintain the above awards, Clear Solutions withdrew from the accreditation and no longer holds either accreditation.
